The Canadian Poverty Hub

Connecting Knowledge to Practice

The Canadian Poverty Hub is a repository of knowledge about the causes and impacts of poverty as well as best practices in poverty prevention and reduction. This searchable database provides researchers, practitioners and policy makers access to current research and evaluation on a range of poverty related topics.

About the Canadian Poverty Hub

The goal of the Canadian Poverty Hub is to contribute to the eradication of poverty by connecting knowledge and resources with those who are able to use them to increase the effectiveness of their work. Researchers at the Canadian Poverty Institute are constantly scanning for new resources to be included on the Hub. We also welcome submissions of resources from other researchers, institutes or interested parties. While our focus is on conditions of poverty in Canada, we also welcome resources from other places that can help inform national poverty reduction efforts.
